common-dreamsConservative Court’s Free Speech Rulings Drenched in Biases

Study shows personal and ideological persuasions of justices clearly impact legal rulings

– Jon Queally, staff writer

(Credit: MSNBC)According to a new legal study of sitting and recent justices on the U.S. Supreme Court, conservative members of the court are tied much tighter to their own political and ideological biases than the liberal justices when it comes to ruling on cases concerning free speech.

Dana Mrkich – Kaleidoscope Of Wholeness – 6 May 2014

Dana Colour Pic NewAs a writer, sometimes a phrase comes out that makes you want to jump up and say yes love that!! “Kaleidoscope of wholeness” was one such phrase that emerged onto the page as I was writing my Let Love In course (current intake underway, next intake will be August!). 

Here’s how it came out: “If you want a healthier, deeper, more connected love relationship, one of the things you are really looking for is to experience authentic emotional intimacy with someone. You want someone who can see you, the real, true you, and who isn’t afraid to see the wounded you. You want to feel safe in showing your kaleidoscope of wholeness to someone, which consists of a whole cast of characters and related issues. Likewise, you want someone who is willing and able to show you their wholeness.” 

 The kaleidoscope of wholeness honours that we are all works in progress on this evolutionary journey!

Lucas – You Only Can Bent Steel And Shape It If It Is Hot – When Cooled Down All Is Well – 6 May 2014

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b0/Goya_Forge.jpg/164px-Goya_Forge.jpgA title  and a few words that in my own observations and that what I myself get through is happening also for you all.  It is like the hardened steel that needs to be made hot again and fired up to get into a state where things become mouldable. In this past eclipses and grand cross alignment month we have been en still are hammered and fired up in all sorts of  polarities or ways to get all back out to be coming back to a state where things can be handled – the neutral.

The irons in the fire at the moment are plenty and some are still seeking the polarity extremes of the old in many ways. It is all drawn out to make it shift into a new state and balance. We are working in our own sweaty hot steelworks to work on our inner fires to be tamed into nice flames. It all reflect in the also seen bigger picture. Heat, beat and treat is what some need to go through as the blacksmith of all that is wants to re-shape armour and weaponry back into plows and cutlery. Continue reading

ZeroHedge – And The First Thing Ukraine Will Buy With IMF Money Is… – 6 May 2014

ZeroHedgeA month ago, it was alleged, that Ukraine – under cover of night – loaded its gold reserves onto a plane and shipped them off (for safekeeping) in the US, as the potential price of ‘liberation’. So how ironic that, given the massive gas debts that Ukraine owes to Russia (and prepayments pending), and sizable bond maturities pending, the first thing that Ukraine’s National Bank governor will be buying with his freshly minted loan from the IMF is… buy a billion dollars of gold.

ZeroHedge – The Destabilizing Truth: Only The Wealthy Can Afford A Middle Class Lifestyle – 6 May 2014

ZeroHedgeSubmitted by Charles Hugh-Smith of OfTwoMinds blog,

The “middle class” has atrophied into the 10% of households just below the top 10%.

The truth is painfully obvious: a middle class lifestyle is unaffordable to all but the top 20%. This reality is destabilizing to the current arrangement, i.e. debt-based consumerism a.k.a. neofeudal state-cartel capitalism, so it is actively suppressed by the officially sanctioned narrative: that middle class status is attainable by almost every household with two earners (a mere $50,000 annual household income makes one middle class) and middle class wealth is increasing.

US Aircraft Carriers ‘Easy Targets’ In Event Of Clash – Iranian Naval Commander – 6 May 2014

RT logoThe head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards says his forces have been holding naval exercises involving the use of replica American warships, while the real ones continue to prowl the waters of the Persian Gulf.

As Iranian President Hassan Rouhani continues negotiations with Western powers over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program, Iranian military officials, perplexed by the presence of US warships in the Persian Gulf, have responded with the occasional saber-rattling.

US air power overseas is dependent on the ability of its fighter jets to take off and land on aircraft carriers, and this “Achilles heel” has made these vessels a natural target for the IRGC Navy in any possible war, Iranian Admiral Ali Fadavi told the Fars news agency.
